    3 inch 856?

    I saw one of these on YouTube on a Latin America channel. It's the new one. Do you think Taurus will ever market these in the U.S.?

    It would be nice to see one, but I won't hold my breath.
    I would be more interested in a .357 Magnum just like that, but again, I won't hold my breath.
    Its Taurus, it may be possible, but do they listen to the consumer?

    Based on the accuracy of my 2" 856, I don't see a need for a longer barrel. Mine is very accurate for me.

    3 inch revolvers are sweet, and Taurus would be well served by offering the new 856 and 692's in 3 inch. Will they however?????

    If they would have those for sale here in the U.S., I would all over one like a fat kid at a pizza buffet!

    I don't know, but I would absolutely buy a 3" 605.

    This thread makes me chuckle, because I actually read some criticisms of the new King Cobra because Colt chose to make it a 3". Some people dismissed it as "neither fish nor fowl." How silly. There's nothing more versatile than a 3" .357. And a 3" .38 is pretty sweet too.

    No new 856s with a three inch barrel but the Taurus 605 with said barrel length are out there. https://www.gunsamerica.com/userimag...wm_1365740.jpg

    As with other Taurus revolvers in the past there are or were 3" models available.

    Were Taurus USA badgered by enough 3" barrel fans then they might sell them in the good 'ol USA. Eventually Taurus might bring those in and usually with little fanfare. They've done things like that before.
